Description: In this radio lesson for students in grades 3-6, Cleveland Public Schools horticulture instructor Mr. Keith Justice gives detailed, step-by-step, hands-on instructions on how to create a new plant from a softwood cutting, such as a coleus plant, in this example. Students are advised that they will receive a coleus plant of their own in a few weeks to use to make cuttings.

This recording is from the "Green Thumb Club" series of radio horticulture lessons, broadcasted by W.B.O.E., 90.3FM for students in the Cleveland Public Schools Horticulture Program in the 1960's through the 1970's. The recordings were donated to Cleveland State University Library by Dr. Peter J. Wotowiec.
